Baby Webster-- 27 Weeks

Growing, growing, growing!

How far along: 27 Weeks
Total Weight Gain/Loss: I have gained right around 15 lbs so far.. According the doc this is exactly where I should be at this point. I will take his word for it. :)

Maternity clothes: I did it, I finally caved, and let me tell you-- BEST DECISION EVER! I kept telling myself that I wasn't going to buy maternity pants, mine still fit fine they just didn't button. (My dad could not get over the fact that I was holding my pants together with a hair elastic. Love him.) But a few weeks ago my mom and I went shopping and I decided to just try some maternity pants on. Let me just tell you, they are heaven! I haven't put on a single pair of my old jeans since. And yes, I have already considered buying a second pair.
Stretch marks: Nope.
Sleep: Meh. Sleep has not been my best friend the last few weeks. Whatever I guess, I don't see it getting much better anytime soon.
Best moment last week: We are getting things done in the nursery little by little which I love. It is exciting to see it finally all coming together!

Movement: Yes sir. She has her moments where she is a wild child (do you know who her dad is???) but I love it. I still feel her all over the place (but mostly down low) so I don't think she has settled into a single position yet, but I don't mind that her feet aren't up in my ribs.
Food cravings: Same ol' things. Spicy. 7-11 nachos. And my newest is milk. I have NEVER been one to just drink a glass of milk, but this little girl must need the calcium or something because that has changed!

Gender: Girl, and a cute one at that! We got to do a 3D ultrasound last week and got a good picture of her face and hands. Technology is so amazing!

Labor signs: Nope. I am getting more and more Braxton Hicks contractions but nothing that the doctor is worried about. 

Belly button - in or out?  Still about flat with my belly, however it is starting to work it's way out. It is only a matter of time I am sure.

What I miss: My stomach muscles. This last week Matt has found it pretty funny that if I am laying flat I can't sit straight up by myself anymore. I have to do more of a side movement and get my momentum behind me. He sees me struggling, gets a few good giggles in, and then is a sweetheart and helps me sit up.
So yes, I miss the simple movement of being able to sit up from a lying position, but I'll take it.

What I am looking forward to: Only 13 weeks left.. How crazy is that! I am looking forward to the end. (However, I am scared out of my mind as well!) 

Milestones: Making it to the 3rd trimester! Yay me! :)

And just for fun--
